    In July, over 3,000 runners, 200 volunteers and thousands of spectators came out to Somerset, NJ to raise money and promote awareness for Multiple Sclerosis. The Mission of the MS Muck Fest is to support people living with MS in our community through vital support services and cutting-edge research. 100% of the funds raised support the Society and its work within the region.

    The “MS” part of MuckFest MS stands for multiple sclerosis, an unpredictable, often disabling disease of the central nervous system, that interrupts the flow of information within the brain, and between the brain and body. Symptoms range from numbness and tingling to blindness and paralysis. The progress, severity and specific symptoms of MS in any one person cannot yet be predicted, but advances in research and treatment are moving us closer to a world free of MS. Most people with MS are diagnosed between the ages of 20 and 50, with at least two to three times more women than men being diagnosed with the disease. MS affects more than 2.3 million worldwide. This is the reason we come together—to rally friends in support of people living with MS in our community. 


    BOMA NJ Members included Allison Berg (Cooper Pest Control), Victoria Tietz (Controp Temps), Christine Rothmel (Fisher Development) and Erika Toscani (Transwestern).

    As a beginning golfer, I took many lessons.  One teacher told me something that stayed with me: she said to always remember that any forward motion, whether 15 yards or 200 yards, is good.  I am excited to see BOMA NJ’s significant strides forward.  We are not just moving in small increments but are taking large steps in a positive direction, as well as moving forward jointly with BOMA International, our parent organization.  

    It is hard to believe we are nearing another year’s end, but it is coming all too quickly Let’s take a moment to look back on some recent accomplishments.  The golf outing was as successful as ever with great weather, a challenging course, and networking. During our September membership meeting, we learned about the challenges that we will face should marijuana be legalized in the state. This issue is important to us all from a business perspective. At the end of September, a team of our members pulled an airplane at Newark Airport to benefit the Special Olympics NJ.  We raised just under $6,000 for this great cause and had a wonderful time. This was followed by a new event - the Tackle Kids Cancer Charity Bowling night. Again, raising just under $6,000 for this worthy cause, a fun time was had by all and the opportunity for one-on-one networking while enjoying the night was key.  Next up is the hands-on fire training at the Somerset County Fire Academy.  This experience will combine learning and fun 

    Coming soon, we will be meeting at the Red Bull Arena and learning about its development from one of our long time members.  

    cannot say enough how wonderful it is to have the caliber of volunteers BOMA NJ is fortunate enough to have.  The new and creative committee ideas and their execution have sparked new interest in the organization.  I am hearing this from both active members and from those who have not been as engaged.  With a Board open to new and different ideas, committees have been revitalized and are working together to get things done.   

    I would encourage all of our volunteers to keep moving forward, making a difference, and encouraging others to join you in your efforts. Working closely with someone to plan an event or educational session is a great way to connect on a deeper level rather than at a meeting. These efforts are paying off by building an organization that will make a difference in our industry through education and networking with some fun added to the mix.   

    As this year progresses, do not be surprised to see BOMA International visibly back, playing a role in our meetings.  We will remind ourselves at each meeting of the advantages of having this powerful organization behind us. Our website has been improved and simplified, and our logo and support materials will be updated. Be on the lookout for these changes.  

    I will say it again and again - getting involved is the best way to gain value from your membership.  Every voice is important and new ideas are welcome.  I look forward to seeing everyone at the Holiday Party.
